Jimmy Fallon can't stand losing in a video game.

Fallon talked to Michael Cera about his new Broadway show, "This Is Our Youth," and mentioned how the actor and his castmates play video games during the day.

"Yeah, we play a lot of Mario Kart," Cera said.

Fallon explained that he set up "Mario Kart" in the "Tonight" dressing room before they taped Friday's show.

"I walked in, very nice and you weren't really making eye contact with me," Fallon said. 

"The reason I wasn't looking in your eyes is because I was getting a very weird vibe from you," recalled Cera. "You came in, [and] you went right to the celery."

"I went in and I grabbed a celery stick and you said, 'let's do this old man,'" said Fallon of Cera's challenge.

The two re-hashed the game, talking about which players and vehicles they used, and Fallon noted that he used a different player and vehicle than usual.

"Why'd you throw yourself off?" asked Cera.

"Because I wanted to be nice to the guest on my show!" Fallon yelled.

"When you play a game, you let someone win, and you beat me out there and then you beat me out here," he screamed, referring to "Catchphrase" game earlier in the show with Julianne Moore and Alan Cumming.

<![CDATA[Fallon: Beer Hockey with Josh Hutcherson]]> Fri, 14 Nov 2014 06:48:24 -0500 http://media.nbcmiami.com/images/213*120/Fallon+Josh+Hutcherson+.jpg

Josh Hutcherson and Jimmy Fallon competed in an intense game that combines beer pong and air hockey.

The star of the “Hunger Games” franchise stopped by “The Tonight Show” Thursday to promote his lasted project, the highly anticipated “Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1,” and chatted with Fallon about being sick on his current press tour before answering fans’ Twitter questions —a medium he infrequently uses.

“I’m not like an everyday, ‘Getting my Starbucks,’ ‘So sad,’ or like those random [tweets],” he joked. “Hashtag Frappuccino.”

Twitter fans asked the “Red Dawn” actor to reveal his favorite childhood memory as well as weirdest talent. The best disclosure came last, when a fan asked Hutcherson if there were any hidden secrets in any of “The Hunger Games” movies.

“Actually, there is a big one that our director Francis Lawrence put in 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire,' said Hutcherson.

In a scene where his character Peeta Mellark is about to enter a tunnel, above the entryway is a sign that reads “PDL-736.” The letters stand for the Spanish explorer “Ponce de Leon” and the number is the address of an underground hip-hop club they frequented in Atlanta during filming.

Fallon then invited Hutcherson to play a game of Beer Hockey, which combined air hockey and beer pong. For every goal a player scored, the other person had to down a cup of beer. The first person to score three would emerge victorious. And after tying in their last game, Thanksgiving Object Shootout, the stakes were higher than ever for a rematch between the two.

It was a slow start for Hutcherson as the “Tonight Show” host scored the first point. The next two pucks swayed in the actors favor as they landed in Fallon’s cups and positioned him one score from the win.

“You can’t come back from this man,” said Hutcherson, speaking too soon as Fallon scores one for a tie.

The nail-biting tie-breaker brought out the competitive spirit between the two and at one point two pucks were at play.

“This game is out of control Jimmy! This game is out of control!” yelled Hutcherson.

As the two teased each other about being thirsty and who would be next to take a drink, Fallon scored for the win.

<![CDATA[Fallon: "Box of Lies" with Channing Tatum]]> Thu, 13 Nov 2014 07:29:01 -0500 http://media.nbcmiami.com/images/213*120/Fallon+Channing+Tatum.jpg

Channing Tatum became the first male guest to play “Box of Lies,” the game of mistrust and ridiculous objects, breaking a long streak of female opponents.

The star of “Magic Mike” stopped by “The Tonight Show” Wednesday to promote his latest project ”Foxcatcher,” and talked about producing “Magic Mike 2” as well as, possibly, an Evil Knievel biopic.

Fallon then challenged Tatum to test his acting skills, on air, by playing a game of “Box Of Lies.”

“Because that is what we are all about, live TV and unpredictability,” said Fallon. “Let’s see what chops you’ve got.”

The game required that contestants pick a box, and either describe the ridiculous items inside, or make up a lie about the contents. If the other player could correctly guess whether the description was the truth or a lie, that player won.

The “Foxcatcher” star kicked off with an attempted lie, or half-lie. His box contained a Chewbacca action figure stuck in a Jell-O mold, but the actor strayed a little by suggesting that the doll was instead a bowl of chili frozen in Jell-O.

“You can’t freeze gelatin, you lie!” said Fallon.

Next, it was “The Tonight Show” hosts turn. Fallon didn’t fair any better at attempting to trick Tatum with his “teabag thread connected to a sugar cube” lie.

At this point, the game is tied. The “22 Jump Street” star picked another box, which contained a stuffed E.T. doll, swaddled inside a sleeping bag with crowns on it. He went for the truth on this one, because sometimes the truth is even stranger than fiction.

“You lie,” said Fallon. Unfortunately, Tatum was telling the truth and declared the winner.

<![CDATA[Fallon: Pyramid With Jeff Daniels, Usher and Nick Jonas]]> Tue, 11 Nov 2014 07:46:45 -0500 http://media.nbcmiami.com/images/213*120/Fallon+Jeff+Daniels.jpg

Jimmy Fallon asked Jeff Daniels to play a “fun gentlemanly” game on the “Tonight Show” Monday, to which Daniel’s replied “I don’t play fun games, I play to compete.”

In a game of “Pyramid” the two were joined by special guest stars Nick Jonas and Usher. Like the classic TV game show, two competing teams attempted to guess a series of words or phrases based on descriptions given to them by their teammates. Daniels teamed up with Usher, while Fallon was paired with Jonas.

Daniels and Usher went first and chose the category “Get On Your Feet” featuring popular dance moves. Daniels acted out several dances including “The Robot", "The Moonwalk”, and a crowd favorite that took Usher a few attempts to guess correctly, the “Twerk”.

“Usher made me “Twerk” for at least 30 seconds,” Daniels said.

Fallon then picked “Fuggedaboutit,” which comprised of famous gangster movies. Fallon quickly was reminded of how young Nick Jonas was when the singer couldn’t guess one single film. Jonas seemed confused as Fallon recited lines from “Scarface", “Goodfellas”, “The Usual Suspects”, and “The Godfather."

“If you would have given me episodes of ‘Spongebob’ we could have gotten all of them,” complained Fallon.

It was then Usher’s turn and he picked the category “Ew", which were about things that are slimy. Daniels struggled to guess the first clue “worm”, and wasted the rest of the time attempting to understand what Usher was slurping. An oyster.

While Jonas wasn’t good at guessing, he turned out to be great at giving Fallon clues. His category choice, “It’s Not Easy Being Green,” words that rhyme with green, netted his team four correct answers.

“That’s good, we got four,” Fallon said. "The game is on.”

In the last round, Daniels chose the category “It’s A Numbers Game,” in which he had to guess musical acts with numbers in their names. Usher serenaded the crowd to Jackson 5 and Boys II Men, but unfortunately that didn’t help Daniels guess any of his correctly.

Team Daniels was leading with 6, while team Fallon trailed with 4.

Finally, the last category “What About Bob?” went to Fallon and Jonas. Fallon decided it would be best if Jonas gave the clues and the “Tonight Show” host guessed.

“Let’s go buddy, you can do this. All we need is three to win,” Fallon assured Jonas.

In what seemed like a lighting round, Fallon quickly guessed Bob Saget, Bob Marley, and for the win Bob Dylan.

“We got it!” Fallon exclaimed.

Matthew McConaughey is an accomplished actor who has earned some of the most esteemed awards in the industry. Unfortunately, he recently discovered that the first two things he ever won as a child were actually a lie.

The “Dallas Buyers Club” actor stopped by the “Tonight Show” Thursday to promote his new sci-fi movie “Interstellar” and dished to Jimmy Fallon about his sham awards.

In 1977, an eight-year-old McConaughey won the title of “Little Mr. Texas,” a label his mother constantly referenced. A few years ago, the Oscar winner came across a picture of himself holding the trophy, and after enlarging it on his computer screen, discovered that the plaque label stated that he was the runner-up of that competition. He immediately called his mother to clarify the discrepancy.

“Well, the kid who won had a lot more money than us and he bought a three-piece suit, so we call that cheating,” McConaughey said of his mothers explanation. “You’re Little Mr. Texas.”

Apparently, McConaughey’s mother had a history of helping him cheat in order to win.

In the 5th Grade, McConaughey had entered a school poetry contest and after a few failed attempts at pleasing his mother with his poetry skills, Mrs. McConaughey pulled out a book of poems and selected one for her son to submit as his own.

“So, I wrote it and I won,” he admitted. “My first two trophies were runner-up and plagiarism.”

The Oscar winner can honestly assert that hard work, and not his mother's meddling, is what earned him of his accolades as an adult.
